It’s been a while since we’ve shared an update with you about what’s going on at Exile Brewing Co., but fear not, there is plenty of news to share!

First things first… the beer!  Over the past few weeks, Ruthie, Betty, and Hannah have started to make appearances at bars and restaurants throughout Des Moines.  They’ve popped up at a few local favorites, like El Bait Shop, and we’ve just begun to introduce the girls to Ames.  To find out where we’re currently on tap, check the lower half of our “About” page.  If you don’t see your favorite bar or restaurant, make sure to ask next time you’re in, you never know where the girls might show up!

Back at the Fitch Soap Building, we’ve completed a few small projects and are excited to announce the opening of our private party room!  Equipped with a full bar, the space is perfect for holiday parties and all private gatherings.  If you would like to reserve the room for your party, please contact Nikki at or by calling 515-883-2337.

Finally, be sure to stop by the The Fitch Studio Building Open House tonight.  Located just across the street from us, and bearing the same historic Fitch name, The Fitch Studio Building has served as home for many Des Moines artists, from painters to glass blowers and everything in between.  The open house starts at 5pm and lasts until 9pm.  Come celebrate our community and history together!
